1 Aldiss, Brian W. The Hand-Reared Boy
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1970 0-297-17960-8 / 9780297179603 First Edition 
Very Good in a Near Fine dustjacket. Red boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. 189pps. There is mild rubbing to the board-edges and there is a faint pencil erasure in the upper corner of the ffep. Also, several pages had been dog-earred. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing wear at the extremities; the original price is intact.

"...The first of a quartet of novels which will span the four decades from the thirties through to the sixties, in the form of fictitious autobiography.
The quartet will reveal with increasing power the malformation of spiritual and sexual life by the anti-human preconceptions of our century. The novels will also expose the poverty of art and human involvement of the English middle classes.
This is the background schema of the novels. On the surface they present merely the rackety, impudent and apologetic life of Horatio and his hungers, as he moves from school to army, from brothel to marriage, and from marriage to the divorce courts and eventual partial adjustment to his own character and the meaning of happiness..."
